Ubuntu Installation :: Update Manager Imposes Adobe Flash Plugin?

Nov 23, 2010

Ubuntu Lucid 10.04 Today, 23.11.2010, the update manager did present two posts with adobe flash plugin updates at the top of the list.

Since I abhor adobe as much as m$, I never installed their flash plugin but did use gnash instead (which works sometimes, and sometimes not...)

So my first question was, why should I update a thing that I do not have and do not want ? Following I did UNcheck the checkbox of these two updates, which in my mind means that Update manager must NOT do these UNchecked updates, isn't it ?

I was terrified to observe that, even UNchecked, the adobe flash plugin has been installed against my will. I would have expected such arrogance from m$, but not from Ubuntu...

Of course, I went to synaptic immediately to uninstall this crap. Knowing how hard it is to get rid of flash under m$, I have some doubts about the fact if synaptic did really uninstall this crap cleanly and completely. I would not be astonished to find at least some remains on my HD one of these days. My current feeling is that nobody on earth can be trusted any more...

1. I would really like to know why these updates were listed in the update manager at all, when the thing to update was never installed before.

2. And I would like to know why they were dictatorially imposed, even though I did UNcheck them.

Ubuntu :: Flash Plugin Stuck In Update Manager?

Jan 12, 2010

I made the 'mistake' of telling Update Manager that I didn't want to install the Adobe Flash Player Plugin Version 10', when Update Manager offered me the option. Now it's still there, grayed out, I can't install it (what I want to do) or remove it from Update Manager.

Ubuntu :: Adobe Flash Broken After Update?

Jun 23, 2010

I just installed a bunch of updates, and found Adobe Flash was suddenly broken. Both Chrome and Firefox report a missing plugin, even though Flash had been working perfectly with the flashplugin-nonfree package installed. So I uninstalled this package, and tried to manually download and install the package from Adobe's site, only to find they only offer 32-bit binaries, which appear to be incompatible with my 64-bit system.Has anyone else run into this problem? Why would an update suddenly break this functionality? How can I repair it?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Adobe Air Update Manager Offers Older Version?

Jan 21, 2011

Using: Ubuntu Lucid The Update Manager has placed me with an odd dilemma, it says that: "adobeair (version will be upgraded to version 1:"

So 'updating' version 2.5 with version 1.2 I think this has happened because Adobe Air updates itself (asking permission first of course) using it's own dialog box from time to time when I run BBC iPlayer Desktop. What should I do, update or not?

Fedora :: Firefox Wants To Update Flash Plugin?

Oct 29, 2009

Fedora 11, 32-bit, updated daily manually via yum (console). Today got the Firefox update to 3.5.4. After restarting Firefox, the fist page reads: "You should update Adobe Flash Player right now." The link leads to Adobe site, which offers me Flash Player version All is fine so far, excluding the fact that I already have this player:

[root@pc ~]# rpm -qa | grep flash

Just for the record, on "aboutlugins" page Firefox confirms I do have the correct player version:

Shockwave Flash
File name: libflashplayer.so
Shockwave Flash 10.0 r32

Does it mean Firefox does not detect correctly the Flash plugin version? Or am I missing something?

Fedora :: Flash Plugin Signing Key - Cannot Update

Aug 11, 2010

Running graphical software update, fc13. Attached are screenshots, which appear in sequence. The first seems to be asking if I trust the source, Adobe. (The Help for this window says I can go to the adobe website to confirm details of the signing key, which I will do if there is not a simpler fix.) If I respond in affirmative to the first window I get the failure window, second shot, with traceback.

Ubuntu :: Chromium Shockwave Flash Plugin Crashed After Update

Mar 8, 2011

after running an upgrade chromium browser shockwave flash plugin crashed! if you have the same problem i have a workaround. firstly open firefox goto a website that uses flash (not videos) i used bbc iplayer, then right click and click on "settings..." the left most tab shows the "enable hardware acceleration" tickbox. untick it

then close and reopen chromium and go back to a flash site e.g. videos and test it is working. the reason this worked for me is that there is a bug in either googles chromium or the unix/x11 build of shockwave flash or my graphics card drivers. there seems to sevral bug reports regarding this on the net [url]. flash could be a little slower now it doesn't have the hardware accelerating it. so maybe the setting could be re-enabled in the future?

Slackware :: Firefox Update And Slackbuild Flash Plugin

Jun 28, 2010

Yesterday I updated firefox following the security mailing to
When starting the new firefox I got the message that I should update my flash plugin. I use the slackbuild for flash so I already had the version


So I tried to open [URL] to see if there are any new versions, but no luck. It seems Adobe has changed the setup and I could only download a libflashplayer without any version number whatsoever... Should I trust this? Should I wait for Robby to update the slackbuild script?

Software :: Adobe Flash Plugin Not Installing?

Jan 10, 2010

Have you tried installing adobe flash plugin recently? My distro is slackware 13 64bit, I just can't install this plugin. When unpacked, it gives me a lib only, I believe it is supposed to give me the 'flashplayer-installer, as it has always done before. Now it gives me this 'libflashplayer.so' only.[URL]..


Installation instructions for tar.gz Click the download link to begin installation. A dialog box will appear asking you where to save the file. Save the .tar.gz file to your desktop and wait for the file to download completely. Unpackage the file. A directory called install_flash_player_10_linux will be created.In terminal, navigate to this directory and type ./flashplayer-installer to run the installer. Click Enter. The installer will instruct you to shut down your browser(s). Once the installation is complete, the plug-in will be installed in your Mozilla browser. To verify, launch Mozilla and choose Help > About Plug-ins from the browser menu.

Ubuntu :: Firefox Adobe Flash Plugin Can No Longer Be Enabled?

May 9, 2010

I'm having an issue changing the flash plug to display flash. I clean installed 10.04 a week ago, upgraded to to the closed source adobe plugin, and everything was great. However, a day ago, I had an issue with one site, and I decided to switch back to the default swfdec player. Since that time I have not been able to switch back to adobe. Every time I attempt to, firefox complains that adobe is already installed. Even if I remove the adobe flash plugin via synaptic and allow firefox to reinstall it, it still uses swfdec.

Ubuntu :: Installing Adobe Flash Plugin - RPM Package File

Aug 17, 2010

I am a 'newbie' to ubuntu (with 45+ years as a 'computer nerd'). I am trying to follow the instructions for installing the Flash plug-in so I can view some of the action on webpages. I get on terminal and the prompt is mike@mike-laptop. The instructions say to key in "# rpm -Uvh <rpm_package_file>". I have tried as many variations of this command as I can think of with no response. I am assuming that my interpretation of <rpm_package_file> is incorrect.
